Freedom. That’s a big part of backpacking. Open the map and let your imagination plot a course. Tackle one more pass, explore another drainage—with the St. Elias you can dream a little bigger. Vasque's lightest backpacking boot covers more ground, while maintaining the stability and comfort you need for an ambitious trip. GORE-TEX for waterproofing, a Vibram sole for grip, and an A.S.E.-tuned midsole that improves traction and feel—get free in the St. Elias.
High quality 2.3mm waterproof oiled nubuck upper with stitch-in molded rubber toe cap and all metal lacing hardware provides durability and longevity. GORE-TEX waterproof membrane keeps the foot dry and comfortable.
Vasque’s proprietary Vibram Frontier sole is molded with XSTrek compound and is designed to minimize rubber without sacrificing traction, for an exceptionally light sole. The A.S.E. midsole has the lightness of EVA with the durability and abrasion resistance of polyurethane. Conformable EVA pods in the heel and forefoot deliver running shoe-like comfort as well as allowing the outsole to conform around irregularities in the trail. The sole system was designed to maximize efficiency of walking gait and user comfort.
